Gymbot, Your Future Exercise Enforcer: Your Move Punk!

by Conner Flynn

The idea behind Gymbot is that in 2020 humans will still be mostly fat and lazy. You will need a Robocop type figure to whip your flabby butt into shape. If you leave it to humans themselves, they won’t get fit, and it’ll be like Wall-E in real life.

Gymbot is a concept robot was designed by Massimo Battaglia of givingshape. The robot will basically be on your case 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Think of him as more of a drill Sergeant overseeing your life. This humanoid robot features articulated joints that mimic human movement, speed and precision. It is equipped with a 3D video camera with a scanner and thermal camera and using a microphone, it will measure your heart rate and blood pressure, while it ignores your pleas for a rest.

This personal trainer ‘bot will also calculate your body fat index, which is just what none of us want to hear about. The touchscreen on Gymbot’s chest will show you the exercises to do. It seems like a lot of trouble and a huge expense to get you to exercise, but it will probably make some company rich someday.
